Although you may come across some locals trying to sell you discount jet ski tours, be advised these providers typically lack both insurance and port captaincy permits. You will not come across a licensed provider offering tours for less than the rates listed above.
Both packages allow you to see a whole new side of Huatulco. The English speaking guides are very knowledgeable on both the area as well as snorkeling, meaning you receive thorough information on the surrounding landscape and marine life.
An extra perk of this mode of water travel is that the small size of the jet skis allow you to enter many of the narrow rocky outcroppings and crevasses that larger boats cannot maneuver. It is there that you often witness incredible marine life sightings. One thing is for sure, when you book your vacation make sure to check out this amazing Huatulco Jet ski tour
